SC orders PR, Sindh govt to carry out anti-encroachment operation
KARACHI: The Supreme Court on Friday directed the Pakistan Railways (PR) and Sindh government authorities to carry out an operation for the removal of the encroachments from all the railway lands meant for the long-delayed Karachi Circular Railway (KCR) to ensure smooth operations of the transport facility for the public.
A three-member bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Gulzar Ahmed, issued these directives to PR and provincial government authorities during the hearing of a case about the removal of the illegal encroachments from the land meant for KCR.
Resuming proceedings at the SC Karachi registry, the bench, which also comprised Justice Faisal Arab and Justice Sajjad Ali Shah as its members, expressed its displeasure over the failure of the federal and provincial authorities in implementing the court’s May 2019 order to revive the KCR. – Statesman
